Attahiru-JegaChairman, Governing Council, Plateau State University, Prof. Attahiru Jega, on Thursday assumed work by inspecting some projects and presiding over the council’s meeting in Bokkos, near Jos.

The projects inspected by the former INEC boss, shortly after their inauguration by Governor Simon Lalong, include the N114 million TETFund Lecture Halls and Offices.

Others were the N72 million Entrepreneurship Centre and the N69 million 250-capacity theatre.

The university’s Acting Director of Works, Mr. Aku Ayok, who took the council members round the projects, said most of the projects were TETFund’s with some completed while others at near completion.

The PLASU Vice Chancellor, Prof Doknan Sheni, said the greatest challenge of the university was non-accreditation and funding.

“A total of 319 of our students could not graduate last year due to the issue of non-accreditation of our courses by NUC and we still have another set of 400 students in their final year”, the VC lamented.

Sheni said there was need for the rapid infrastructural development in the university and recruitment of the staff to meet up with the NUC accreditation.

Jega, who expressed gratitude to the Plateau Government over the appointment, said the university was founded on very lofty objectives with a very good mission and vision statements.

According to him, the role of the council is defined by law and that it will do everything possible to see that staff worked together to stimulate the growth and development of the university.
